    Unless I'm missing something, and I'm sure I am, isn't it technically possible to have 9 local players on the Wii U? (4 remotes + 4 pro crontrollers + gamepad)
    Sorry if noob question.

    I guess, technically, yeah. Although I don't have a Pro Controller so I'm not completely sure.

    Now we just need to wait until a game takes advantage of this.

    Holy crap. Insanity would ensue.

    Truthfully, I hope the WiiU pro controllers have the same "clacking" noises that the GameCube controllers did. Nothing screams Smash Bros more that those button mashing noises the GC controller made.

    The screen would be ridiculously small when split into 8 pieces on an average TV.

    Isn't their four controller ports other then the gamepad? And regardless if its a wiimote or pro it will take up one of the four available ports. If not its not like there are plugs so why not sync a hundred wiimotes

    It doesn't but it'd be pretty damn confusing to have 8 players on the screen bouncing around.

    I wasn't talking about SSB specifically, just general games multiplayer games.

    If you could do 4 gamepads + 4 controllers (either Pro or remotes) it'd be a pretty neat feature for like a FPS (8 person local multiplayer, 4 playing on gamepad screens and 4 on the main screen).

    But hey, you can't always get what you want.

    Ninty promised 2 gamepads at a time, so It should go 4 remotes, 4 pros, 2 pads - 10 players. But I don't think it's possible, as WiiU pad pro (what is it's name?) is just a CCP stuck in one shell with a wii remote, so they would take the same "Bluetooth slots". I don't have a WiiU tho, so I can't be sure.

    It would be a very interesting clusterfuck that I wouldn't want anything to do with.

    Absolute nonsense. Wii U owners don't have that many friends.

    Wii U Pro Controllers take up the same slots as Wii Remotes. And there are only 4 Wii Remote slots.

    Bomberman Blast used the Gamecube ports in conjunction with the Wii Remotes, and we know those are gone.

    In other words, there is no way to get more than 5 players on a single Wii U. This may extend to 6 with a second GamePad, but until then it'll only be 5.
